MFV Expositions (“MFV”) and Comexposium, the nation’s leader in connecting the franchising world with motivated entrepreneurs, is planning a Los Angeles takeover when the largest franchise trade show heads to sunny Southern California. Franchise Expo West will be held April 12-13, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. PST at the Los Angeles Convention Center, featuring 200+ exhibitors, more than two dozen workshops and sessions, and an expected crowd of 3,000+ entrepreneurial candidates traversing the trade show floor looking for business ownership opportunities through franchising.

Building on the success of our three well-attended expos last year, we’ve put a lot of hard work and effort into planning an enhanced Franchise Expo West event. Thanks to the ever-increasing demand in connecting potential franchisees with quality franchise brands, there’s never been a better time to explore entrepreneurship. We’re excited to play the role of matchmaker in this scenario, as Franchise Expo West is the perfect opportunity to experience the kind of face-to-face meetings that pave the way for entrepreneurs when it comes to establishing a future that includes more freedom and flexibility.
